Perineal Moisturizers | Antibacterial and Antifungal Moisturizers

If you or someone you care for is living with incontinence, there can be skin issues, such as painful irritation, rashes, or infections where the body comes in contact with urine or stool. The skin of the genitals, buttocks, and delicate perineal areas may be particularly susceptible to infection.

While taking steps to keep the area clean and dry can help, perineal moisturizers and related products provide an extra layer of protection and comfort.

How Does Incontinence Lead to Skin Issues?

Excess moisture from incontinence can break down skin's Ph balance and other protective properties, making it more vulnerable. It can be especially serious if excess moisture lingers, like for for people who may not realize they've soiled their garments or who are unable to change them right away.

Symptoms such as redness, irritation, chafing, peeling, and discomfort can develop and worsen over time. Harmful bacteria or fungus may thrive, leading to an infection.

How Perineal Moisturizers Prevent Skin Issues

Keeping the affected area clean and dry is key to preventing incontinence-related skin issues. Breathable or moisture-wicking undergarments, as well as frequently changing incontinence underwear, pads, adult diaper briefs, or liners, will promote dryness. Perineal cleansing lotion is an alternative to soap and water. Many people find these cleansers to be more delicate on sensitive skin.

Perineal moisturizers are also effective at caring for skin affected by incontinences. These products come in a variety of forms, such as creams, ointments, or sprays. They can help by adding a moisture barrier directly to the skin. Many also have ingredients that soothe discomfort and help prevent infections.

Shopping for Perineal Moisturizers

The best perineal moisturizer for you will depend on your individual situation, preferences, and healthcare provider recommendations. Here are other factors to consider when choosing a perineal moisturizer:

  • Product type -- Some people have specific preferences regarding creams versus ointments. Ointments generally stay on top of the skin rather than getting absorbed.
  • Application -- A product isn't going to be effective if you have trouble applying it, so be mindful of any challenges you may have using the product. Sprays are an option if reaching the affected area is an issue.
  • Scent -- Some perineal moisturizers have odor control properties and may even be scented. These may be a good choice if you're concerned about odors. Be sure to check labels, however, if you're sensitive to scented products or have a scent preference.
  • Infection control -- There are different types of infections that can affect the perineal area. If bacterial infections are an issue, look for a product with antibacterial properties. If fungal infections are an issue, look for an antifungal product. Your healthcare provider can help determine which might be best for you.
